The JCI European Know-How Transfer
At the JCI European Know-How Transfer in Brussels, Belgium, JCI members have the opportunity to communicate directly with European Commission officials and Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), thus strengthening personal contacts and increase mutual understanding between politicians and the business community as well as the civil society.
Each year, keynote speakers from the European Commission (EC) as well as high ranking politicians from the European Parliament (EP), explain their views on pressing European issues such as the European Economic Crisis, Youth Unemployment and the agenda of the Commission for this legislature. This year's EUKHT will take place virtually. The Virtual EUKHT will feature a series of online panel discussions with hand-picked speakers and selected topics light of the 2020 theme.

Learning more about mutual challenges and sharing ideas leads to cooperation and mutual understanding.
Main goals of the program include:
• Exchange of experiences, common challenges, positions and requests
• Create mutual understanding
• Promote the European idea
• Reduce prejudices and misunderstandings
• Tighten the network between Members of the European Parliament and JCI members
• Work together on a political theme
